"Her new book, Surf the Backlash, is a book of inspiring stories, a call to action on environmental issues and a plea for a new level of political engagement that transcends party politics and stakeholder 'identities'. Drawing on first hand experiences from almost twenty years on the front lines of environmental battlefronts in North America and beyond, Tzeporah Berman and Mark Leiren-Young calls on us to not only reevaluate our priorities in the face of global warming but to reevaluate our allegiances and prejudices to form new relationships and create new solutions.
"In 2008, Berman launched a new citizens engagement initiative, PowerUp Canada-Canadians for Climate Leadership. (She serves as its executive director.) It has found overwhelming support from five former Prime Ministers, prominent business leaders, scientists, and policy experts.
"A young star of the environmental movement, Berman appeared in Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary The 11th Hour. She was also nominated for the Schwab Social Entrepreneur Award, and named by the BC Royal Museum as one of the 150 people who have changed BC's history. She has been featured in The Globe and Mail, Green Living and The Vancouver Sun, among other publications."
